Hi guys,

is it possible to use a property out of an MSI in powershell? In VbsScript I can use it with the Session.Property() commmand but I dont find any information about how to do it in powershell.

Would be nice if someone can help me out

There is no Powershell Custom Action type for Windows Installer:


But you could potentially pass the value you retrieve via VBScript into a Powershell script as a parameter?  I think the closest you get to using Powershell is this:


But it can't be used from a CA for an Installer session (Although I only glanced at it...).  What are you trying to achieve?

  • Hi, thx for the answer.
    I was trying to archive the same as with VBS, just to expend my horizon ;)
    So I will go back to VBS.
    Thx for that
